The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Nigeria on Monday invited the Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Paul Orhii, for interrogation over alleged abuse of office and contract scam.

Mr. Orhii’s invitation for questioning followed allegations of supplies made at NAFDAC, linked to his personal company.

A source at the EFCC said that Mr. Orhii arrived at the Wuse Abuja headquarter of the agency earlier on Monday.

He has been granted administrative bail, as he is expected to re-appear before the EFCC.

He is the latest high-profile Nigerian that the EFCC has invited for questioning over allegations of corrupt practices since President Muhammadu Buhari took over office on May 29.

On July 28 the wife of the Senate President, Toyin Saraki, was at the headquarters of the EFCC for questioning over an alleged case of corruption.

After about five hours with the officials of the anti-graft agency indoors, Mrs Saraki left the premises with her supporters.

Earlier on July 8 the Former Head of Service of the Federation, Mr. Steve Oronsaye, was arrested by the EFCC and was few days later brought before Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court Abuja, to answer charges of corruption, bordering on 1.2 billion Naira fraud. (Channels TV)
